The utility to let you transfer Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate saves between the 3DS and Wii U versions is currently missing in action. It was supposed to have been released on the eShop yesterday on both platforms, concurrent with the game, but neither the 3DS "Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate Data Transfer Program" nor the Wii U "Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate Packet Relay Tools for Nintendo 3DS" are up on the eShop right now.

Capcom Associate Online/Community Specialist Yuri Araujo posted on the Capcom-Unity thread about the issue, apologizing for the mysterious delay and stating that it would be up late yesterday. As of writing, it is not. We've checked in with Capcom for an updated ETA.

For now, you can play Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate on 3DS or Wii U – you just can't play on Wii U if you want your progress from both to carry over.

Update: "Capcom is working closely with Nintendo to make these available for download as soon as possible and apologize for the delay," the publisher tells Joystiq.
